"One of the areas of weakness in the Stanfield office was media says a party member'. "Tom.is a practical and respected journalist, he knows the country well, he can write and he understands poli- tics." Sloan, 41, comes from Quebec City after two years as director of French-language Laval Uni- versity's journalism and infor- mation program. He also has been chairman of the Quebec Civil Service Com- mission's selection committee for government information offi- cers since 1968.

His new job is described by Joe Clarke, 30, who is leaving it, as exhausting.

"I think things are looking up." He is going to France to relax and learn the language, but probably will be back to help the party in the expected 1972 election campaign. A party ad- herent, he was president of the party's university student asso- ciation before joining Mr. Stan- field in 1967. Sloan, on the other hand, has had no previous connection with the party. As a University of Toronto student in the early 1950s, he had a brief fling with Social Credit. He took a master's degree in political philosophy at Toronto, then followed the Trudeau route abroad with postgraduate studies at the University of Paris and the London School of Economics.
